The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Micro 4/3 Camera

The OM-D E-M5 Mark II is Olympus’s full-featured update to the original mirrorless Micro 4/3 OM-D E-M5. Key features include:

What’s New. This generational update sees a more refined button layout with ample customization, improved 5-axis image stabilization, pro-grade video features, and the much-talked-about high-res 40 MP mode.

16MP Live MOS Sensor. This 4/3 sensor, most likely a hybrid of the E-M10, utilizes the TruePic VII Image Processor to reduce noise levels across the normal ISO 200-3200 range. Additionally, the processor has been tweaked for excellent high-speed performance, now reaching 10 fps when using a fixed focus point and 5 fps when using autofocus.

5-Axis VCM Image Stabilization. The original E-M5 was the first Olympus camera to feature their renowned 5-axis in-camera stabilization, and the E-M5 II builds upon it. This new system now offers up to five stops of correction and greatly improved performance during video recording. There’s also that little high-res mode…

40 MP Multi-Exposure Mode. Utilizing the image stabilization system, the camera essentially shoots eight images over the span of one second to then combine these images into a single 40 MP image. Since it’s composited from multiple images, any movement will muck it up quite nicely, so both you and your subject will need to be completely still. In other words, use a tripod and don’t try to shoot your two-year-old.

Big Boy Video. We won’t say previous-generation Olympus cameras were bad at video, but they weren’t great. The E-M5 II joins the big boys in video performance with full HD 1080/60p/51Mbps using IPB compression, and 1080/30p/77Mbps using All-I compression. Additionally, there’s now true focus peaking, uncompressed HDMI output, a mic input socket, and timecode options for filmmakers. And don’t forget the 5-axis stabilization that’s been optimized for video!

Viewing Methods. The flagship E-M1’s fantastic 2360k-Dot electronic viewfinder is employed in the E-M5 II, offering 1.48x magnification with 100% coverage. If you’re shooting from a tripod or arms reach, the swap to a fully-articulating 3.0" touchscreen rear LCD is sure to make you happy. While the tilting versions in all of the previous OM-D cameras were decent, they just don’t compare to an articulating version.

Build & Ergonomics. The weather-sealed, magnesium-alloy body provides a solid, reliable workhorse for all types of shooting. Button and dial placement has been refined, providing a more comfortable layout with even more customization than the E-M5. The physical size is quite similar to the former, with a slight reduction in height due to the removal of the accessory port. It’s not a major advertised feature, but the included accessory flash has been improved substantially, now featuring a bounce-able/rotating head.

Other Notable Features. The built-in wi-fi from the E-M1/E-M10 has made its way to the E-M5 II, allowing wireless image transfer to and camera control from smartphones and computers. There’s a silent electronic-shutter mode that enables a max shutter speed of 1/16000 sec. when engaged (1/8000 sec. normally). The camera still records images and video to SDHC/XC memory cards, but the battery life sees a slight dip to 310 shots per charge using the same BLN-1 model.
